Kelsey Anderson Details Brutal Attack

Kelsey Anderson spoke out about being attacked when she was in college. The assault landed The Bachelor star in the hospital. She detailed the experience in a recent TikTok video.

Unfortunately for Kelsey, this just made the man more aggressive. He grabbed her butt and she turned around and tossed her drink at him. Then, she started to walk away, but the man ran up behind her and punched her in the back of the head. She fell to the ground and had significant cognitive issues for several hours following the incident.

She explained in the TikTok video, “I ended up falling, I couldn’t speak for five hours.” Doctors believed that her temporary loss of speech was due to being in shock. However, Kelsey Anderson also suffered a mild concussion after the attack. Shockingly, the police never found the man who attacked The Bachelor star. So, he got away with the assault.
